GIZORAMA - his review has been late in coming. Somehow, every time I sit down to write it, I found myself opening Dominions 4 and wanting to make “just one more move.” Then a portal through time would somehow open up and I would come out of a trance at 3 A.M. with another empire destroyed, but nothing actually written. Luckily, I’ve managed to take screenshots during these gaming sessions, otherwise the only record I would have of that time is the stories of empires that have been subdued in my head.
Dominions 4 is the latest installment in the Dominions game series, a series which has a cult-like following of people who relish the meta game of strategy games. In Dominions, you can win a battle through sheer numbers, by blessing a small group of elite soldiers that can fly behind enemy lines, by cursing enemy leaders so that they are marked for death by Horrors from the netherworld, or any number of other methods.
